I’ve got native-fluency in both English and Macedonian and I’ve also got a Bachelor’s Degree in English Language Teaching and English-Macedonian (and vice versa!) translation. I’ve also got professional experience in editing due to my degree. I’m new to Viki, because I wanted to volunteer in my free time, but it’s proven difficult exactly because of this. I’ve been watching on Viki for a while and I noticed that my mother tongue, Macedonian, wasn’t on any of the dramas I’ve seen so far. So, I decided to make an account and volunteer, seeing as I know a ton of people in my country who’d love to watch, but would like the subs to be in Macedonian. I just wanted to make these dramas even more available.
Anyway, I volunteered for a couple of projects through the Project Finder, but I was told “We don’t have a mod for your language, sorry.” or I just didn’t get a reply at all. We’re a small country and as far as I’ve seen, there’s no one else that wants to volunteer in Macedonian. I would happily also volunteer to be a mod and mod myself and any other people if they turn up in the future. However, I cannot volunteer to be a Macedonian mod, seeing as I need to have 3000+ subtitles to qualify for the position. Also, I cannot get those 3000+ subtitles if I’m not allowed to subtitle because there isn’t a Macedonian mod already.
@vikicommunity Is there anything you can do about this?
